Why we chose it

One of the upsides of the current property market slowdown is that buyers have more options due to the oversupply of units. Buyers can even look beyond the usual hotspots favoured by investors and find good homes in places that are often lies in more tranquil towns. 

Why limit yourself to popular city centres and suburbs when there are a variety of quality offerings in other areas too?

Serendah is one such place that could easily top your list of hidden gems, especially if you’re a property hunter. It is just about an hour away (50km) from Kuala Lumpur, with a charm and ambience that is all its own. 

Antara Gapi is a small town (392 Hectares) in Serendah with many upcoming township developments, including landed housing and commercial units. Azhara is one of the latest projects in Antara Gapi developed by Selangor state development corporation, Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS) and is creating a lot of buzz among property buyers.

What it offers

If you’ve been living in the city centre all your life and are a little worried that Antara Gapi might lack amenities, don’t be! All your basic needs are just a stone’s throw away – restaurants, cafes, pharmacies, shops, convenient stores (7 Eleven, 99 Speedmart), clinics, mini market and mosque.

For your kids’ education, there is SRK Antara Gapi, as well as other schools within a 3km radius such as SKA Bukit Sentosa, SMK Bukit Sentosa, SM Bukit Sentosa and SJK(C) Serendah

Great accessibility

If a place seems a little too far away, access roads and transportation would probably be key to your decision making in buying the house. The location of Antara Gapi is certainly boosted by its great accessibility. 

You can reach Antara Gapi via the Rawang Bypass (also known as Rawang–Serendah Highway), LATAR Highway, Sungai Buaya (Lebuhraya PLUS) as well as via Sungai Tua, Gombak. For those who would rather opt for public transportation, Antara Gapi is a mere 5 minutes’ drive from the Serendah Komuter Station.
